Recipe Wednesday

With Memorial Day approaching in the US, Aunt Mary thought you might need a little inspiration. The following is from my personal copy of Better Homes and Gardens “Meat Cook Book” from 1968.

I could post so many more recipes and images, but the book is a treasure trove of WTF that I plan to keep on mining for a long, long time.

As far as retro food pics, these are not the worst I’ve seen. Not exactly appetizing, but not boggling gross either. I think we can all agree the real star of this show is the too-cool grill. It’s like the James Bond of grills. If you don’t have a martini while using this grill you have missed an rare opportunity to increase your cool factor.┬áThe apple plates and encroaching fake jungle┬ámay take down the new-found hipness just a bit though.
